If you are a provider of Care Support and Enablement Services for adults within the Nottingham City region and wish to become an Accredited Provider, this page outlines how your organisation can apply for a contract with Nottingham City Council.

This process will be used to develop a list of assessed and approved Providers to deliver Care Support and Enablement (CSE) Services for adults as they are required. The Council will place packages through the Accreditation as its sole contracting mechanism (at the expiry of the current CSE Framework in March 2018) and intends to transfer all existing spot contracts which are commissioned outside of the Current CSE Framework to the Accreditation under new terms and conditions.

Application Pack

The accreditation application pack for the provision of Care Support and Enablement Services for adults:

Please note that applications will be evaluated every 6 months, in April and October, although the council may choose to evaluate applications sooner at its discretion, should operational needs require this. Applications must be received by the 1st of the relevant month to be considered in that round.

Please submit completed application forms by email to procurement@nottinghamcity.gov.uk

Information and instructions about how to complete the application form are available to download above.


Any questions in relation to completing the application form or the content of the Accreditation documents should be emailed to procurement@nottinghamcity.gov.uk

Next Steps

During the assessment, providers may be contacted for further information or to clarify responses. Approved providers will be issued with a contract with Nottingham City Council, a copy of which is available to download and view as part of the application pack.  Applications will be considered on a regular basis. Please note that it could take up to 8 weeks from submission of an application to the award of a contract if an application is successful.
